WARNING. ALL VIDEOS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED . YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. God of War III was released March 16, 2010 for the Playstation 3. It was highly anticipated after the success and cliffhanger ending of God of War II. Like its predecessor, it took everything from the game before and turned it up to 11. Serious graphical improvements and boss battles so large it is hard to tell where your character even is...

Welcome to GOD HAND! It's a game where you beat up demons! It's also INCREDIBLY FUCKING AMAZING.

|Space Quest Collection - Nidoking|
The original Space Quest was an attempt by two Sierra programmers to create a parody of both science fiction and adventure games, and it worked. It worked well. It may have worked TOO well. The game spawned no less than five sequels and developed a huge following among adventure game fans. Its scope and popularity are probably second only to Sierra's flagship series, King's Quest, among all of the company's adventure game properties, and Space Quest arguably had the dignity to end before becomin...

So, what do you suppose you get when you cross Resident Evil 4, Shenmue, and Twin Peaks? The answer took the form of a game released in February of 2010; a low budget survival horror game from a small Japanese studio. Originally known as Rainy Woods in 2007, and given the name Red Seeds Profile upon release in Japan, the version of the game released in America was called Deadly Premonition. Developed by Access Games, and headed up by game director Hidetaka Suehiro (better known as SWERY), Deadly...

Although the game is pretty short (It can be beaten in about an hour if you know where to go) it sold well enough when it first came out to warrant a re-release in 200...

It was one of the very first games to establish the phrase "survival horror." Known for its sluggish controls and bad voice acting, the classic game has now sold over 2.7 million copies.
